Joan's Gardens Weekly Card Challenge #13

Hello!  I hope you've had a great day!  This is my second post today - I hope you had a chance to check out the new release from Heartfelt Creations - the Springtime Cardinal Collection!  If not, you'll definitely want to head on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog.  In addition to all the inspiring card samples from the Design Team, you can enter there for a chance to win the whole release!  Amazing!

On to my card.  I made this card for the Weekly Card Challenge #13 on Joan's Gardens' blog.  This week the challenge had the following requirements:

-Use an embossing folder
-Use a die cut
-Add something dimensional
-Make a monochromatic card with just a splash of color

My card is also for this week's Greeting Card Challenge (GC041111) on The Outlawz site which was to make a card that is at least 50% white and has a sentiment on the front.

Here is my card:

I started with a card base of GKD heavy base weight white CS and layered with  Papertrey Spring Rain.  I embossed a white panel with the Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade embossing folder.  The main image panel was cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval die and layered onto a Spellbinders Lacey Oval frame.  I added tiny pearls to the scallops of the frame.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations Inspire Me Sentiments.  It is stamped with Memento Summer Sky.  I stamped three each of three of the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Flowers with Summer Sky and cut them out with Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Flowers dies.  I layered them and added a pearl to the flower centers.  These were mounted with foam tape around the frame.  A very simple card but it has lots of dimension in real life.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your evening!
